The HHES fourth-graders exhibited a “Living Museum” of famous New Hampshire people. Each student chose a famous New Hampshire figure to impersonate during the museum. They researched and wrote a short summary of their person’s life and worked to memorize their summary. Students created their costume from materials at home using their notes and a picture of their person. Students also practiced and memorized their summary in class and at home. Additionally they created posters and masks. Parents, family members and the other students all came to visit and listen to the students speak about their well researched famous NH person. The children enjoyed this project and always love when family and friends come to support them. There were several John Paul Jones', Christa McAuliffe's, Mandy Moore's, Jeanne Shaheen's, and Carlton Fisks'; as well as a Seth Myers, Franklin Pierce, Chris Carpenter and many others.

DI Global Finals, Kansas City, Missouri-May 21-26, 2019
The HHES DI team had quite an adventure at the Global Finals in Kansas City. There was a lot of pin trading with the other states and at least 15 other countries. The team members came back with a wonderful collection of pins.
The competition was a tough one. There were 74 teams at the Elementary level in the engineering challenge. The HHES Team was also one of the youngest teams made up of 9 year olds. Many of the Elementary teams have fifth graders on their teams. The HHES team came in 28th. Not bad at all!
Besides pin trading and competing, the team had the opportunity to spend a day at Worlds of Fun which is an amusement park. Thursday night was Box and Baller Night. We started with a BBQ followed by free gifts, balloon artists, bag pipes, marching drum bands, two dance bands and fireworks to mention a few.
The team members describe the Opening and Closing Ceremonies as ‘extremely amazing’.
The team was accompanied by their mothers who appeared to have just as much fun, if not more, than the kids.
Overall, for the first time in Missouri, it was an awesome opportunity.
We also want to give a big Shout Out of THANKS to all those who donated. We couldn't have done it without you!
